THE FAKMER: MARCH 8, 1918
7' IUSS CITY FALLS INTO TEUTONIC KAISER'S PEACE TERMS REQUIRE COMPLETE DEMOBILIZATION OP ARMIES, CESSION OF MUCH LAND TO TURKEY, AND SURREND ER OP CONQUERED TERRITORY FOR HUN AND AUSTRIAN, London, March 5 Narva, 100 miles southwest of Petra grad, has been captured by the Germans and the enemy report ed to be continuing his advance on Petrograd, says an Exchange Telegraph dispatch from Petrograd dated yesterday. Amsterdam, March 5 Russia and the Central Powers, in the peace treaty reached in Brest-Litovsk, agreed that the war between them should be at an end, Berlin dispatches say. The third clause of the treaty provided that the regions west of a lino agreed on and which is to be lineated later, formerly be longed to Russia, shall have no further obligation toward Rus sia and Germany and Austria will determine their fate in agree ment with their population. Article 4 provides for the evacua tion of the Anatolian provinces and the surrender of Erivan, Kars'and Batoum to Turkey. The treaty continues: "Article 5.

"The barred zone in the Arctic con FEDERAT IDEM AP BRITISH LABOR LEADER RESIGNS SEAT IN HOUSE COMMONS TO DEVOTE HIS TIME TO ELECTION CON TEST DEPLORES KERENSKY ERROR. London, March 5 The compaign for the next general elec lion already has begun. Arthur the war council, finding that the party compels him to spend most cided to resign his seat in the house of commons from the Barn ard Castle division of Durham and has been invited to contest the southern division of Eastham. Mr. Henderson addressed a meeting I last night In Eastham, making a I strong appeal for the abolition of se I cret diplomacy, for peace by concilia I'tion and for a league of nations. He ' said that before the war began the people had entrusted foreign affairs to statesmen and diplomats and were paying dearly for their neglect. It had to be recognized that no greater disaster had , occurred in the course of the war than the fatal otnmission to -do the utmost to keep Premier Kerensky and his government in power in Russia. The people must be on their guard against a repetition of the same fatal policy over a wider field. It is highly , improbable, Mr. Hen derson declared, that the war can be ended by a decisive Prussian military triumph. It might end by a process of exhaustion and that meant a con tinuance of the war, with all 'its hor rors, until the destruction of human life and material of one or both sets of jbelligerents made continuation im prijsible. Such a termination would 6e a disaster of the first magnitude to mankind. There remain, he said, a third thing a' policy of conciliation through combined forces of labor and Socialism to obtain a real peoples' peace. That did not mean a surrender to the enemy, or a patched up peace, or peace at any price, 'nor that the people are willing to condone Ger man brutality or to leave Germany with all her power for mischief unim paired. What the policy of conciliation meant was the destruction of militar ism, not only in Germany but every' I Whei'3. V Mr. Henderson then recited the well known aims of the Labor party, including a league of nations. He said that such a league Implied the com plete democratization of the machin ery of government in all countries, the suppression of the greed of diplomacy and the publication of treaties, which must never contravene to stipulations of the league of nations. It meant the. certain abolition of military ser vitude in all countries, to be prepared for. by a common limitation of arma ments, and that there must be no sug gestion of commercial boycott or the financial or commercial isolation of Germany. f The German policy toward Russia made the policy of peace by concilia tion much more remote. The people must convince the German people "Siit victory for such ruthless militar ism would fasten permanently on democratic nations the awful burden of armaments and enforced service end that the greater the German suc cess on the battle front, the more re mote was world peace.

TIONS MURDERER OF MOTORMAN IS GIVEN 8 YEARS Tuesday; March 5 Pie: ding guilty to a charge of man slaughter in the Superior Court today John Williams, accused of the- mur der of Benjamin Parsons, December 7 last, was sentenced to not less than eight nor more than 10 yeans in siate prison by judge John P. Kellogg. With the sentencing of Williams the February term of the court practi cally came to an end, there toeing ho more business lor the petty Jury, and its members wiere discharged for the term. There will toe a grand Jury to morrow to consider the "Baby Doll" and 'Texas" cases, accused' of the murder of Norris Pannill in the Key stone club riot Williams, on the evening of De cember 7 last, had a quarrel with one Charles Brown in their boarding place in Newfield avenue, and fired several Bhots at Brown, one of which took ef fect. Brown has since recovered from his injury. After the quarrel In the boarding house, Williams, crazy drunk, went into the street and practically "ran amuck," firing his re volver. At .Stratford and Seaview avenues, Parsons, a trolley employe, was stand ing, and one of the shots from Wil liams' revolver struck him in the stomach. For a time Parsons did not know he was injured, walked in drug store, but later, collapsed. Ha died later in a hospital. Williams was overpowered and held i'o or the shooting of Parsons. In court Williams was represented by Robert G. DeForest, public de fender, although charged with mur der, the state consented to accept a plea for the lesser crime, there being no contention that he purposely fired at Parsons. In view of the previous good record of the accused, the fact he was intoxicated, and the peculiar circumstances under which he be came possessed of the revolver led to leniency. With the conclusion of the Williams case practically all of the business for this term of court is finished. There have been about 80 cases disposed of. including one in which murder was charged. . U. S. OFFICERS IN N. Y. SEEK WIRELESS PLANT New Tork, March 5 Government 1 officials are searching for a powerful wireless outfit in this city which, it is believed, is in communication with the German station at Nauen. Messages in code have been picked up by wireless stations maintained by the Army Intelligence Bureau. One of these messages picked out of the air several days ago has been partially decoded. . It is the belief of army signal of ficers stationed at Fort Totten that this message reported the departure from New York of the troopship Tus-, cania which was later torpedoed with appaling loss of American lives. In efforts to locate this mysterious wireless plant an army radio station has been operating at the Hotel Ma jestic for some weeks. The anten nae of this outfit is hidden by the huge electric sign on tha roof of the hotel at Seventy-second street and Central Park West. Secret new devices attached to this plant indicate the location and direc tion in a general way of the plant from which outside messages are sent. Several code messages have been picked up from this powerful and mysterious German radio system. The detectors" on the Hotel Majestic plant indicated the German wireless was somewhere in the vicinity of the Battery. Captain F. A. Houghton, of the Army Intelligence Bureau, came from Fort Totten two weeks ago and has been living at the Majestic. Oth er officers and wireless experts of the army and navy have been aiding in the hunt for the Berlin radio. When word came that a wireless outfit could be found at No. Ill Broadway Cap tain Houghton notified United States Marshal McCarthy. It was intended to visit the Trinity Building, at No. Ill Broadway, last Saturday night. Marshal McCarthy went to the Majestic and had a con ference with Captain Houghton and the decision was arrived at to make the raid on Sunday. For several days Richard Pfund the tenant had been under observation. Captain Houghton, Marshal McCar thy's wireless experts from Fort Tot ten and a couple of deputy marshals made up the visiting party. The tow er on top- of the roof at the twenty- first story of the building has four floors. These were . formerly used as the offices of the Telefunken Co., the German-owned wireless system, which maintained powerful sending and re ceiving stations at Sayyille, L. I., and Tuckerton, N. J. ' Pfund was their manager unti; April, 1913, when he had trouble with his company and resigned. He then leased the four floors of the tower in his own name. He used them as an experimental laboratory. The wire less plant which formerly operated from tower remained. Pfund sa; he dis -iTed it early last year when orde-f "n the Navy Department puttinr prohibition on all wireless except .those plants operated by the government. On Sunday Pfund Was seen to enter the tower, and the officers followed him. They obtained a key from Carl A. Leasenfeld, superintendent of the building, which is owned by the U. E. Realty & Improvement Co. ' Once in side, the officers found Pfund had gone upstairs in his tower, locking the door behind him. They called on him to open. He refused. THEATRE YEGGS GET $1,000. .

Y., immediately, to begin his sentence. He was tried' on three counts, -on two of which he was found guilty. In one of these he was charged with say ing: "If I am put in charge of: a party on the other side I will sur render to the Germans, no matter what their strength may be." On another occasion he said: "I will fight for the United States so long as I am kept on this side of the Atlan tic, but if I am sent to the other side I will act independently."

NEARLY 25,000 INVALIDED MEN II Paris, March 5, (Correspondence of the Associated Preen): There wene 24, 136 invalided soldiers of warring na tions interned in Switzerland on Oc tober 31, 1917, according to a report of the Swiss Federal Council. Of these' 12,376 were French, . 1,822 Belgians, 964 English, 8,594 Germans, 228 Austrians, and 142 Hungarians. These figures do not include 4,746 interned persons who were returned to their native coun tries in accordance with agreements concluded between combatants through the intermediary of Switzerland in 1917. An interesting account of the nego tiations leading to the repatriation of wonuded soldiers is contained in the first report of Major Edward Favre of the internment servico of the Swiss Army, which has just made its ap pearance. The question of an ex change of wounded prisoners was taken up, the report says, in the first months of the war but almost insur mountable difficulties arose because of the fact that the belligerents feared to risk releasing these prisoners, who, while unable to resume their posi tions on the front, might be used in occupations which would free other mobilized men for combatant service. Following a conversation which he had in Paris with M. Millerand, Min ister of War. Gustave Aidor, president of the International Red Cross Com mittee, proposed to M. Hoffman, then head of the Swiss foreign office, that it would be possible - to intern the wounded soldiers in Switzerland. The Swiss Federal Council received this suggestion favorably and the greater part of 1915 was spent in negotiations between Switzerland and tne warring powers. In December, 1915, an agreement was finally concluded between Switzer land, France and Germany. England and Belgium later joined in. The first repatriates began to arrive in Switzer land early in 1916. They were mostly soldiers afflicted with tuberculosis. , It was necessary to find useful oc cupations for those who were able to work and to teach new trades, to those whose injuries prevented tnem from returning to their ante-war occupa tions. Professional men were assisted in continuing their studies., The .prob lems of discipline and administration have also been dfficult ones,- tout all are being solved, and new ways and means are constantly being found to make the interned men haPPy and 'comfortable.

The fighting .records of., the various soldiers' are being compiled and on these records recommendations will be made by. the , general commanding the division. The data is gathered carefully so as to make certain that none will be honored especially for sim ply . doing his duty. The entire American expeditionary force Is waiting to see who among them will be the first to get the new war medal. '.'r ' A German machine gun in perfect condition may be sent to Washington as the first American war trophy. It was' among the mass of material dropped hastily by the enemy when he retired from his ineffectual attack on the American lines last week. The weapon, with several belts of ammu nition, now is in possession of intelli gence ' officers'. 1 ' '" It is" now ' permissible ' to give the names of the officers and men decor ated yesterday by Premier Clemen ceau.

"DRY" CHAIRMAN MAKES ISSUE A MEASURE OF WAR Chicago, "March 5 A demand for immediate, nation-wide prohibition as a war measure was made by Vir gil G. Hinshaw, chairman of the- Pro hibition national convention, , in an address opening the 13th national convention of that party today. More than 1,000 delegates . from all parts of the.: country were present. Mr. Hinshaw said : "We want prohibition for the per iod of the, war. but we also want it permanently. W.ev want it in' the na tional constitution, Already seven states have ratified the prohibition amendment, Mississippi, Montana, Kentucky, Virginia, South Carolina, North Dakota, Maryland, two wet and five dry. We will take it for granted that all dry states will ratify. In that event we . must . win seven more wet states. The wet states which we be lieve we can' win; in fact almost, are certain of winning, are Nevada, Wyoming, Florida, Ohio, Minnesota, Missouri and Texas. That makes seven. There are others we should win, namely California, Wisconsin, Delaware, New Jersey and Vermont; that makes five more. Even New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Louisiana are by no means hopeless. "But I repeat once more the issue is not can we secure ratification, of the prohibition constitutional amend ment. The issue is will we do it within 12 months or will we allow the matter to be deferred for three or five or seven years. I do not need to impress upon your mind that the issue is overwhelming; The; differ ence between national prohibition in 12 months and three years means a waste of at least $12,000,000,000. Also it will mean the loss of a couple of hundred thousand lives. It will mean a decrease in the coal output of 15 per cent." It will mean the waste of enough grain to feed an army of 5,000,000 soldiers. The difference between national prohibition 12 months from now and' three years from now might mean the loss of the conflict between the Allies and Ger many. ' . ' "Germany has gone so far as to prohibit the use of grain for the man ufacture of beer. That is the greatest single attack she could have made against the armies of the Allies. Let us aake a counter attack by securing waC prohibition within 90 days and national constitutional prohibition within 12 months. YWe also have met here to decide among -other things what shall be our relations, henceforth to the organiza tion known as the National party. The question, I believe, with, us Prohibi tionists is, will a complete merger aid us in securing more immediately and permanently our original object, na tional ... prohibition? The complete merger might mean a more powerful political party organization. That is not the sole thing for us to seek. We want the organization to be powerful for the execution of our main pur pose." "DRY" PARTIES IN CONVENTION Chicago,' March 5. The national conventions of the Prohibition and the'-'National parties met here, today to -formulate policies for campaign during the year. . - The National party was organized here- last October by representatives of. the Prohibitionists, Progressives, Loyal Conservatives and Single Tax 'era. ' ENTENTE AGREED TO FR EE HAND IN RUSSli COMMITTEEMEN OF FRENCH CHAMBER OF DEPUTIES SAYS OTHER COUNTRIES WILL REFRAIN SITUATION IN SIBERIA AND MANCHURIA ABSORBS PRESS AND PUBLIC OF NIPPONESE ISLANDS. Tokyo, Saturday, March 2 The Russian situation is. completely absorbing the press nd the public. There have been frequent meetings of the Japanese cabinet at which, doubtlessly, the entire question was consid ered most carefully with full realization of the serious nature of the responsibilities involved. It is understood, says a Reuter dis patch to London from Tokyo, that the Japanese government is extremely well informed as to developments in Siberia, but it is at present following a policy of watchful waiting. Japan is carefully avoiding arousing the op position of loyal Russians, who, not withstanding their dire need of as sistance, appear to be extremely sen sitive of outside interference. Recognizing also that China is 'en titled to consideration as a protector of the frontier on which Japan does not actually border, Japan, the dis patch adds, probably has agreed with WILSON WILL TAKE OVER GERW SHIPPING LINES AMENDMENT TO DEFICIENCY AUTHORITY TO TITLES TO asWhington, March 5 President Wilson intends '- take over the Hamburg-American and North German Lloyd st amship companies, which arrive and dock in Hoboken.

ALLIANCE Washington, March 5 Discussing reports of possible action by Japan in Siberia, Senator Lewis of Illinois, Democratic whip, in the Senate today declared there was no agreement or understanding between the United States and Japan on the subject. "There is no alliance between the United States and Japan of any kind whatever," said Senatorf Lewis. "There is no compact between the United States and Japan of any na ture whatsoever, contracting on our part as to Siberia or Russia, nor al lowing privileges in the Philippines or Mexico not enjoyed by any other friendly people. "Whatever Japan is doing in re lation to the war is in pursuit of her alliance or compact with Great Brit ain. Whatever Japan is doing in Si beria or as against Germany is in compliance with the terms of an ar rangement offensive and defensive, made with Britain to oppose any wrongful advance from any source in the east against the rights of either. "The status as to Japanese and Orientals the United States is fixed by a treaty well understood between the United States and Japan, called a gentlemen's agreement and which neither nation has assumed to change on any conditions of the war." THOUSANDS DIED IN BOLSHEVIST ATTACK ON KIEV Washington, March 5 Several thousand lives were lost and millions of dollars of damage was done in the city of Kief, Russia, during the recent fighting between the Ukrainians and the Bolsheviki, according to delayed consular telegrams to the state depart ment, Teceived today.

BILL TO GIVE PRESIDENT COMMANDER LEGAL PROPERTIES. Although the government has been using the docks and properties of the two German companies. President Wilson told Senator Martin at a White House conference today that it was deemed necessary to take over the legal title. The president arranged with Attorney General Gregory to ad vise congress of the legal situation. " Senator Martin was called to the White House to arrange for a pro vision in the urgent deficiency bill to meet the situation. No details of the president's plan were given to Senator Martin, but arrangements were made to take up the urgent deficiency bill in the Senate today ahead of the war finance corporation measure, to ex pedite the deficiency appropriation and the matter relating to the German docks. WILSON AMAZES THEATRE CROWD WITH A SPEECH Washington, March 5 All official Washington was talking today about a little speech President Wilson made last night from his box at the theatre. It was the first time within memory of anyone here that a president had done such a thing. With a large audience, the president, had enjoyed a play depicting the con version of. a disloyal German -American into a loyal citizen. When one of the leading actors in response to repeated curtain calls exhausted his curtain speech and the audience de manded more, he suggested that prob ably the president might say some thing. Rising in his box as a wave of ap plause and cheering swept the theatre, the president thanked the actors f or an admirable performance, and said how much he had enjoyed the theme of the play.
